As the year 2020 comes alive, a new virus has come on the horizon. COVID-19, or Corona Virus, has brought fear, confinement, and despair. My memory goes back to the year 1984; I remember being 13 years old and kept hearing of a virus called (ARC) or AIDs related complex, a disease that plagued the now LGBTQ/LGBTQ + community and took the life of my dad. We, as survivors, now hear of cures from this disease; I see great minds coming together for a breakthrough treatment to end the fatality of Corona Virus (COVID-19).
Healthcare crews and military doctors are treating those infected with a COVID-19 virus outbreak. The World Health Organization (https://www.who.int/), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (https://www.cdc.gov/), and the Red Cross (https://www.redcross.org/) are helping; check your state and local health organizations for pertinent information available to stay Coronavirus free.
The World Health Organization (https://www.who.int/) is an organization established in 1948; their core values is to dedicate every day as World Health Day, something that we as a community, and as a human race should start promoting in our state, city, town, and households. The Who organization is becoming a household name and remains in our daily prayer corner. Yes, precisely a prayer corner, closet, room, whatever your specific spiritual nature wants to call it.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (https://www.cdc.gov/) is a significant component of the Department of Health and Human Services. A great source to help the United States in combating the spike, causes, and rotations in the spread of sickness and diseases.

Another organization that is always in need of help and volunteers is the American Red Cross (https://www.redcross.org/). Our nation can provide care, service, and support.
